Apocalypto: The Cinematic Logic of Genocide

Juan Santos | Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto is not a mere adventure tale, it’s not just another excruciatingly brutal portrayal of apocalyptic violence for its own sake, and the Village Voice is dead wrong when it says that unlike Braveheart and The Passion of the Christ, Apocalypto is “unburdened by nationalist or religious piety,”— that it's “pure, amoral sensationalism.”

Indymedia editors- Where's information about Brad's murder and Oaxaca?

just me | I was trying to find a list of targets for boycotts etc. of corporations in Oaxaca benefiting from death and repression there. Couldn't find it or a link to a page with more information about Brad Will - Indymedia journalist, friend of many in NYC, activist - and his murder, the status of the investigation into it, and announcements around that and what's happening in Oaxaca!

An Appeal to Graphic Artists, Visual Designers, Animators, etc...

Adam | As graphic designers, animators, web designers, and other multi-media artists, we are increasingly forced to content ourselves with 19th century working hours (necessitating no overtime pay), deteriorating benefits, and perpetual financial and job insecurity. By their glaring omission from print and online journals, these concerns register as nonissues. We are therefore left with the impression that informal work environments and the intellectual gratification permitted by creative design render these grievances irrelevant. more...  0 Comments

Tears and Rage: Reflections on Eric Ng's Death

onto | Another death, another tragedy. 'One more bullet cracks the night.' This bullet had 4 wheels though. I can't believe this last year. Daniel McGowan going down; Meg Perry killed in New Orleans; Imogen at the New School; Brad Will in Oaxaca; Eric Ng in New York City. 5 people from all different aspects of this movement, taken down. And these are just the ones I knew! All in their 20's and 30's. And more: Sean Bell in Queens. The South Central Farm torn down. The last barricade in Oaxaca gone, Radio Universidad over. About 300 immigrants die a year crossing the border. The Iraqi death toll reaching 1 million soon. What the fuck is going on here? more...  1 Comments
